In the middle of June 1800, Napoleon Bonaparte's troops were engaged in battle with Austrian forces near the small village of Marengo in northern Italy. The battle was fierce, or so the legend has it, and Napoleon, of course, emerged victorious. And hungry. He asked his chef to prepare a meal quickly and the cook scoured the countryside looking for foods to prepare. He scurried around and discovered a chicken, olive oil, tomatoes, herbs, eggs and crawfish. Within minutes, a fire was started and the chef prepared a quick sauté of the chicken with tomatoes, oil and herbs. It is said that he garnished the dish before serving it with a fried egg and crawfish. In my version, the chicken, cut into serving pieces, is simply browned in a little olive oil (I add a touch of butter to give it flavor) on both sides. I then prefer to add sliced mushrooms (there are those who declare that truffles were among the original ingredients), seasonings, wine, tomatoes and parsley and cook covered until done, about 10 minutes longer.

  • Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat the butter and oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces skin-side down. Cook until golden brown on one side, about five minutes. Turn the pieces and cook on the other side about two minutes. Pour off the fat from the skillet.
  • Scatter the mushrooms over the chicken. Stir to distribute. Add the onion, garlic, bay leaf and thyme and cook about 5 minutes.
  • Add the wine and scrape the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon to dissolve the brown particles that cling to the bottom of the pan. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, chicken broth and parsley. Bring to the boil. Cover and cook 10 minutes. Serve with rice and a tossed green salad.

Chicken Marengo has been subjected to its authenticity over the years and my personal determination is it's a concept not a true recipe. It is said Chef Dunand prepared this dish for Napoleon by quickly soliciting ingredients from local farmers after the June 1800 Win against the Austrians in Marengo, Italy (which is said to become his "lucky" dish). In fact, that same evening N seized Gen. Kellerman's dinner (not this dish), which had been donated by a local monastery. CD didn't go to work for Napoleon until 1801 and was in Russia in June, 1800. N enjoyed chicken ala provencale often for breakfast, which could be the starter base to the CM recipe, C D recorded recipe in 1809. The use of mushrooms, truffles, garlic, black olives, white wine, seasonings, etc. have been other chef's interpretation or personal preferences. Crawfish and French fried eggs were indeed part of the original recipe, but one or both have been left out or substituted throughout the years. I've written a recipe as close to the original, while making it 21st Century user friendly.
